Abbas, after receiving the letter and reading it to members said, “We have today declared the seat of Surulere Lagos Constituency vacant following the resignation of Gbajabiamila. “
Gbajabiamila said in his letter of resignation addressed to the Speaker that he would take up a new role as the Chief of Staff (CoS) to President Bola Tinubu.
The immediate past Speaker further said he would cease to be a member of the 10th House of Representatives.
